Statement on fatality following an incident at Loch Lubnaig on Sunday 25 July.
Gordon Watson, Chief Executive of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, said: “Tragically, another water-related death within the National Park has been confirmed by Police Scotland.
“A 34-year-old man died in hospital after getting into difficulties in Loch Lubnaig at the weekend. Our deepest sympathies are with his friends and family.
“With five people having lost their lives in three separate incidents across the Park, the last few days have been devastating and we are thinking of all of those connected to those who have died.
“A series of urgent meetings are being held this week to reflect on these tragedies and discuss potential further actions to improve water safety.
“We are also using our communications to raise awareness of vital water safety advice, particularly around the risks of cold water shock and potential for sudden changes in the depth of water. We ask everyone to take a moment to read about these risks and help us spread these important messages to as many people as possible.”
